Characteristics of Viña Mayor Verdejo

Viña Mayor Verdejo is a white wine produced by the winery Caserío de Dueñas, in Villaverde de Medina, D.O. Rueda.

 

Caserío de Dueñas is the winery that produces Rueda wines for the brand Viña Mayor. It belongs to Grupo Bodegas Palacio 1894, a large winegrowing company that manages more than 1200 hectares in 5 denominations of origin.

This winery is located in an farm that has more than 300 hectares of vineyards in one of the top quality areas of the D.O. Rueda.  At the head of the production process is Almudena Alberca. She is an oenologist who is part of the current generation of Spanish oenologists with an international outlook.

 

Viña Mayor Verdejo is a wine that is produced with Verdejo and a small percentage of Sauvignon Blanc, both from vineyards that are over 60 years old. They are harvested at night to take advantage of the lower temperatures and preserve all their aromatic potential. Once the harvest arrives at the winery, and after it goes through a soft stomping process, it ferments in stainless steel deposits at a low temperature. Here, the harvest is left for 2 months on its fine lees.

Tasting notes Viña Mayor Verdejo

Viña Mayor Verdejo 2017 is a fresh, light and aromatic wine. Citric fruit and tropical notes stand out in this vintage, with hints of aniseed and fennel. An attractive and refreshing Rueda.
The 2016 vintage, rated as very good, began with an autumn and winter with high temperatures for these seasons that predicted an acceleration of the vines’ growth cycle. At the beginning of the spring, temperatures fell and rainfall returned to normal figures. This fact was translated in an adjustment as far as budding and flowering dates. At the beginning of June, the heat arrived and stayed all summer until the beginning of the harvest. In general terms, it was a rainy and somewhat warm year. The wines of this vintage are characterised for being aromatic and with a good acidity. Where wines in their youth will preserve their aromatic and fresh features.
The 2015 vintage was rated as very good in a year where no climatic accident occurred. Autumn and winter were somewhat warmer than normal but with normal rainfall. In spring, the growth cycle started a few days in advance, but temperatures and rains continued normally until the beginning of summer. Days before the harvest, temperatures became milder and the end of ripening was very good. The wines of this vintage are characterised by a good balance between maturity and acidity. A good aromatic profile that will age correctly.

    Designation of Origin D.O. Rueda

    When we talking about the Rueda wines, we are often referring to their white wines. The white wines produced in this region are often made with the Verdejo variety, the main variety of Rueda, planted along the Douro River and its tributaries. Rueda white wines often offer lots of floral notes, scrubland low, delicate aromas and a great acidity given by strong temperature differences between day and night. Apart from white wine, Rueda also produces red wine, often made with the Tempranillo variety.
